Canon EOS 7D Gets Firmware Update To Resolve Issues With Shooting Movies in Manual Exposure Mode

July 27, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Canon’s EOS 7D has become the latest DSLR in the company’s range to receive a firmware update to solve issues with the gadget’s aperture control while recording video in the manual exposure mode. The set aperture was said to move during the shooting process, and version 1.2.2 of the software update for the Canon cameras is capable of fixing the issue.

Other cameras in Canon’s range such as the 5D Mark II, 1D Mark IV and the Rebel T2i, which also suffered from the same problem had received a similar firmware update earlier. A fix for the AF point sensor selection behavior of the EOD 7D DSLR is also included in the new firmware.

The update also fixes the AF display while shooting images or video in the vertical shooting mode. The incorrect spellings displayed in the Thai and Spanish language menus for some of the company’s cameras are also corrected to display properly using the new update.

The new software version can be downloaded from Canon’s website and the company has urged users to read the entire page carefully before updating the software on their cameras.
